Meeting March 2010: Brief Report
Delegated Planning Agreement
Despite some anomalies The Parish Council voted unanimously to continue the Agreement with TDBC for 2010/11.
TDBC Core Strategy
Councillors thanked the Clerk for a comprehensive response to the Strategy.
Following the Public Meeting about the Strategy, Councillors discussed the two empty properties in Creedwell. Apparently one will be the subject of possession proceedings in April while the other is believed to be privately owned.
As a result of questions at the Public Meeting Councillors also discussed the question of Affordable Housing. Recognising the distinction between Affordable (ie Social) Housing and private housing that is affordable to lower income buyers, Councillors felt they needed more advice and therefore agreed to invite the Chief Executive of Falcon Rural Housing to the next meeting.
Following a request from North Street residents Councillors agreed to purchase 2 new grit bins. Cllr McMahon kindly offered to contribute to the cost from his allowance.
The following matters were reported:
- The TDBC proposal to close the toilets was withdrawn because it was made after the Parish Council had set its precept for the year. It seems likely that this subject will be raised again later in the year.
- The posts supporting the railing on the path to the Church from Parsonage Lane have rotted and the matter will be reported to SCC.
- Councillors received a request to place a memorial bench in the Jubilee Gardens.
